It was painted for the Galli family in Florence, who as the text shows, still owned the painting at the time this print was made.

Lisabetta, a young woman in loose robes, her dead lover's head in her right hand, a character from Boccaccio's 'Decameron'. After her brothers kill Lorenzo he appears in Lisabetta's dreams, telling her where his body is buried. She moves his head to a pot of basil, which she painstakingly cares for until her brothers take it away, whereupon she wastes away. John Keats used the story in his narrative poem, 'Isabella, or the Pot of Basil'.
